The reviled sex predator dubbed The Beast of Blenheim has walked free from prison this morning under the cover of darkness.
Stewart Murray Wilson, 65, walked into self care unit No 5 outside the wire of Whanganui Prison about 6am.
It is understood he has already been fitted with a new GPS monitoring system. Security guards with dogs are patrolling the perimeter.
The plan looks as good as one can do, in the circumstances. I just hope that he doesn’t actually get to harm anyone before he inevitably breaks his conditions.
